Senior Bowl Notes

  • Watkins accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Senior Bowl in Mobile.
  • The former Florida Gator was excellent in coverage on Tuesday. Perhaps the best play that we saw all day long was Watkins’ interception during 1-on-1s when he was covering Tulane WR Ryan Grant.  Watkins trailed the route and then darted in front on the deep dig for a tremendous interception.  He was excellent in coverage in every phase of the practice.
  • Spoke with Fresno State QB Derek Carr on Wednesday who singled out Watkins as the most difficult corner to throw against in Mobile.
  • Watkins left Wednesday's practice with an injury during 1-on-1s.
